Toronto, we finally have our own poop themed restaurant, @poopcafe which opened today in Koreatown! With all those food trends catching on in the city, it was inevitable that this trend would eventually come dropping in to town (Sorry, I couldn't resist) Overall poop theme doesn't take over every element in the decor except toilet chairs, mini urinal cups, poop props and cute chalk drawings on the black walls but nothing particularly over the top. Featured here are Nutella and Oreo Bingsu's served in mini toilets, Red Bean Poop Waffle. Fun novelty and brings a wacky twist to desserts but don't expect to find any savoury food here as its all sweets, drinks and waffles. #mrdimsum #poopcafe #cafe #dessert #poo #toilet #downtowntoronto #koreantown #taiwanese #taiwanfood #blogto #gastropost #feedmyphone #foodiegram #foodielife #livetoeat #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #huffposttaste #picoftheday #shit #emoji #torontorestaurants #cravethe6ix #foodietribe #koreatown
Over the weekend Toronto opened a poop-themed Poop Café, the first of its kind, complete with toilet-shaped dishes and furniture. The poop emoji naturally also appears throughout the restaurant, which will serve a variety of Korean food as well as ice cream, of course, because what would a poop-themed meal be without a porcelain bowl of chocolate ice cream?
The cafe’s owner, Lien Nguyen, told the CBC that she got the inspiration for the Poop Café while traveling abroad, as poop-themed restaurants are not actually all that unusual in other parts of the world. She is aware however, that the idea of a poop cafe might be off-putting to some people:
“I just want to make something fun. So if people want something fun, they come,” Nguyen said. “A lot of people they don’t want to come, that’s fine, too.”
“My goal is people laughing and people already did,” Nguyen said. “Who doesn’t laugh when they hear about poop?”
She’s got us there. We always laugh when we hear about poop. If you’re not able to make it out to Toronto to check out the Poop Café yourself, the copious Instagram posts that have gone up since the cafe’s grand opening will give you an idea of what it’s like. Check out some photos of the restaurant and the food they’re serving.
